“In 'Around My French Table' by Dorie Greenspan”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the mustard and tapenade in a small bowl.
  2. Add the vinegar and olive oil and whisk until the vinaigrette is well blended.
  3. Pour the dressing over the lentils and stir to blend.
  4. If you want to use the whole lemon, finely chop it; if you are using just the rind, cut it away from the pulp, discard the pulp, and chop the rind into small bits (Dorie uses the whole lemon).
  5. Stir the lemon and scallions into the salad.
  6. Drain the tuna and use a fork to flake it over the salad.
  7. Season very lightly with salt and generously with pepper, and toss.
  8. Taste, and if you think it needs it, stir in a little more olive oil.
  9. Can serve the salad now; bit it is better if you cover it and chill for a couple of hours, giving the flavors time to blend.
  10. Right before serving, taste again for seasonings and oil.
